And here I thought we were getting closer...

Obviously there is a whole domain to explore there if this nice program is to be used by more than anglo-saxon people. Accented letters, diacritics, special letetrs like the cedilla () are used by all western languages!
You would think utf-8 -> cp1252 would be something easy and standard to do! Obviously, something isn't working properly.

Is it the primitive HTML 3.2 ebookwise renderer or the python translation of utf-8 webpages or a combination thereof?

(aside: this seems a very common issue, as I usually find stray characters on webpages of international subsidaries on Canadian/US domains. The euro sign comes up a lot, in the most unexpected places sometimes. I always thought it was bad transcriptions!!! It appears its just a utf-8 to windows 1252 issue! )

Anyone else see a possible solution to this?
